Owl: What are you looking at?

Owl [enlarge]

Although this owl seems to have ears or horns nothing further from the truth. The auditory system is on both sides of the bird's head behind the eyes and covered by the feathers of the facial disc. I took this picture at Cim de les Aligues or Eagles Peak which has been covered in previous posts. The bird was in captivity.
